We use the railway to get to the sea life centre and back to save us from walking, always fun!! Very cheap and worth the money if you want to make it a family day out in Scarborough🙂

I was given an engine driving experience. Had a superb afternoon, learnt a lot about the workings of a steam locomotive. I had an excellent driver to teach me. If I lived nearer, I'd certainly apply to work there as a volunteer.

The ramp is steep but yes there is a car for the wheelchair to sit in although it is used for buggies a lot of the time so at peak times there might be a wait
